I read on I it was ftatalk or ftabins that both the 9000HD and SV-HD are manufactured by Viewtech. I'm assuming they have some hardware similarities. Since N3 is effective and there's no fix, viewsat is technically dead. I've a 9000hd and is collecting dust. If there's way to convert it to maybe SV-HD, I would definitely like to know. Any help be appreciated. Thanks.
